Is it filed so your strings fit snug?

Make sure you put me in your citations at the end. Or at least in your sig.

you might have to file down your saddle so the string fits snug, as the unforgiven6 said. the saddle probably wasnt meant particularly for your guitar, so it's meant to fit some other model.

Where did you get it from? Did you have to do any shaping yourself?

He said saddle, not nut. There's no "strings fitting snug" with a saddle, nor should there be with a nut.

Again, he said saddle, not nut.

Check to make sure that the bottom of the saddle is true and flat and that there's no debris left in the slot in the bridge that the saddle fits into. Sometimes small wood chips are left over if the builder isn't careful enough and they will cause a poor contact between the bottom of the saddle and the flat surface in the slot in the bridge.
Check that all of your strings are installed properly and that all bridge pins are in snug, but not overly tight otherwise you'll have troubles taking them out next time. Just press them into place with your finger while you try to pull the string out, that's it.
